Play hard and Work harder
Diversity Technical Infrastructure Sourcer (Former Employee) –  Mountain View, CAFebruary 27, 2014
I loved working for Google and my job; however, if you are a contractor you definitely get the lower end of the stick. The culture is none like no other on the outside - work from home, flexible schedules, food galore, games, gym, etc. However, management is very corporate and they still play the favoritism games, etc. It is very easy for someone to get caught up with the physical culture and the benefits of working for Google and overlook the fact that they are still strongly corporate behind closed doors. They do not train you at all so if you work for Google you already know what you are doing and you should be able to sit down and get to work.
Pros
27 different free restaurants, free buses (contractors pay $1.50 each way), the list goes on
Cons
They are more corporate than they claim and the work is very hard

The Google HR MAchine
Technical Sourcer (Former Employee) –  Mountainview, CAAugust 30, 2011
I worked in the Google HR team so I can really only speak about that group. Google hires lots contractors for their HR function, and they know how to onboard them quickly and easily. With all the benefits, and amenities at their work sites I rank them as a top place to work.

They have a ton of really smart people there and no matter your role, you will learn stuff from the people around you. For this reason alone, it is a great place to work. The down side is the work/life balance. Google pushes a ton of work onto your plate and they mange to complete it. Plan on eating at work at least 4 nights a week to finish your work.

But hey, on the upside the meals are gourmet and they are free.
Pros
fun environment, can drink at work, free food
Cons
work/life balance, imature employees/culture
